PREPARATIONS for the second Presidential Youth Interface rally scheduled for Manicaland on the 16th of June have gathered momentum with stakeholders embarking on a mobilisation drive to ensure its success.
The meetings seek to address challenges faced by youths across the country, and after Manicaland President Robert Mugabe’s next visit will be to Masvingo Province.
Dangamvura-Chikanga legislator Esau Mupfumi, Zanu PF members and youths have been holding a series of meetings as part of the broader mobilisation drive in the constituency.
Addressing the youths and the party leadership at Chirovakamwe Primary School, the legislator encouraged the youths to take advantage of the historic Presidential Interface programs to present their issues to the President.
Just like the Marondera Rally, thousands of people are expected to gather for the rally penciled for Sakubva Stadium.
President Mugabe began a marathon of interactive meetings dubbed Presidential Youth Interface Rallies last Friday with a bumper crowd outside Rudhaka Stadium in Marondera, Mashonaland East Province.
Zanu-PF Manicaland Province Youth chairperson Mubuso Chinguno said they were targeting to mobilise at least 60 000 party supporters for the Sakubva rally.
The Zanu-PF Youth League said the presence of other party wings at an interface meeting between President Mugabe and the youths shows the party’s preparedness to address challenges of antagonism in the party.
“We want President Mugabe’s visit to Manicaland to be graced by at least 60 000 people, and youths across the province are working around the clock to ensure that the target is surpassed.
“Come June 16, Zanu-PF’s mobilisation muscle will be felt. It is an honour for Manicaland to be receiving a revered African icon in the form of President Mugabe,” said Chinguno.
